Pocket Living: West Green Place

West Green Place is Pocket Living's first community in the heart of London’s Haringey neighborhood where a discarded piece of land was transformed into a new community center. The parcel holds a total of 126 homes designed by award-winning architects HTA Design LLP, ranging from first-time buyer apartments to family townhouses. Providing stunning views, green paths that connect residents to nearby cafes and direct access to Downhills Park, the development is conveniently located for experiencing the best of the neighborhood. Residents can go to central London in just 17 minutes with nearby transportation options of Turnpike Lane and Seven Sisters stations. Plenty of restaurants and foodie haven Stoke Newington are also just down the road.

All of Pocket Living’s homes are designed to maximize interior spaces to offer modern and sustainable living solutions. Designed for urban dwellers with all the essential features for a first-time buyer, each home has sufficient space to live and work from home, including floor-to-ceiling windows that allow natural daylight to filter into each room. But West Green Place is more than just a collection of houses—with an on-site community center and a nursery, it has all the ingredients to make a thriving community.

About half of West Green Place’s residents are key workers originally from the Haringey neighborhood. One of the residents, Kezia, is a clinical psychologist local to Tottenham who says she always wanted to live and to be connected to the community that she works in. Despite the fact that it’s difficult to purchase a home in London, she was incredibly excited to find a discounted home that allows her a short commute. Kezia is proud to own a little bit of London and to be able to continue living in the neighborhood where she was raised.
